Wayne Tinkle Introduced as Oregon State Coach

Wayne Tinkle promises to emphasize effort and attitude as Oregon State’s basketball coach.

Tinkle comes to the Beavers from Montana, where he took the Grizzlies to the NCAA tournament three times during his eight years with the team. Montana finished below .500 only once during his tenure at his alma mater.

The 48-year-old Tinkle was announced as head coach Monday night, and the school held a news conference Wednesday night to introduce him.

“We are going to make Oregon State relevant again, he said.

Tinkle replaces Craig Robinson, brother-in-law of President Barack Obama, after he was fired earlier this month following six seasons with the Beavers where he failed to make the NCAA tournament.

The once-proud Beavers have not been to the NCAA tournament since 1990.

Tinkle went 158-91 with the Grizzlies, compiling the second-most victories in school history. The only slight on his resume at Montana was an inability to get an NCAA tournament victory, something the Grizzlies have not had since beating Nevada in the first round in 2006.
